What Caused The Economic Crisis?

Excellent video that traces the current economic crisis to its origin. Its real origin, as opposed to what Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-MA) says was the origin. There’s a good political (for him) reason he doesn’t go ALL the way back. The seed for this failure was planted by the peanut farmer and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, former President Jimmy Carter.

This video moves along at a pretty good clip, so if you want to get a look at some of the screenshots that are shown, have your mouse pointer ready on the pause button.

Thanks to Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) for distribution of this video.

Alcee Hastings (D-FL) Uses Race Card On Jewish Group

Are you beginning to see that the antics of the racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor for over 20 years, is not so much of an isolated incident as Democrats would have you believe? On Wednesday, speaking to the National Jewish Democratic Council, a group that applied pressure to disinvite Gov. Palin from an anti-Iran rally in New York, the Democratic congressman said . . .

‘anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.’

And he follows it up with this statement . . .

‘If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention.’

He will be criticized, of course, for his racist and bigoted comments. But it is obvious that what we are seeing is Hastings simply following the lead of his candidate who said to a democrat audience, without any substantiation, predicting that John McCain and his Republican allies will try to scare them.

“Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Obama said. “You know, he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name, you know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

Then there’s this quote which I heard him say, ‘And oh, did I mention, he’s Black?’ Do you think that the Obama campaign can win an election by using such despicable tactics? Apparently, they think that they can.

CAIR Challenges 'Obsession' To The FEC

Following up on a recent post entitled ‘Delivering Propaganda,’ a group called CAIR (more on them later) is asking the Federal Election Commission to investigate whether The Clarion Fund, a nonprofit group that distributed the documentary ‘Obsession, Radical Islam’s War Against The West,’ is a “front” for an Israel-based group with a stealth goal of helping Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Don’t you just love conspiracy theories? Please check your tinfoil turban at the door, and, watch out for those black helicopters. They’re coming for you.

It is quite telling that this Muslim group thinks that making people aware of ‘radical Islam’ is a political statement that helps a particular political party. To which all I can say is, oh well, if the shoe fits, wear it.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said . . .

If you heighten the hysteria over national security or terrorism or do anything to make people more fearful, it’s clear they would trend toward McCain because that’s been his mantra throughout the campaign.
